Clara Coleman Farmer

  • 2015

Clara Coleman is a second-generation organic farmer, consultant, writer, and speaker on sustainable four-season farming, and daughter of renowned farming pioneer Eliot Coleman. In 2008 she created Divide Creek Farm – an organic, intensively-managed 2-acre four-season vegetable farm located in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado – and successfully operated the farm for three years. She produced year-round vegetable crops under harsh winter conditions, using unheated and minimally heated moveable high tunnels and greenhouses. Clara now resides in Portland, Maine with her two sons and is focused on farm consulting, building the ARC Farming project, writing a book on four-season farming for the next generation, family farm grant projects with land trusts, promoting the work of Slow Tools and Farm Hack to further the collaboration between farmers, engineers & makers of innovative tools, and farming workshops & speaking engagements nationwide as a means to inspire and encourage the next generation of farmers.
